Sugar Shot To Space - Rick Maschek

Sugar Shot To Space - Rick Maschek  

Rick showed a picture of a rocket embedded in the top of the roof of a car.

The primary goal of Sugar Shot to Space program is to loft a rocket powered by "sugar propellant."

Everyone in the project is a volunteer, from around the world.  Rick showed some pictures of the various rockets built over time.

Rick showed us this video:

They have tried various pressures when building their fuel.

They think they can get something to orbit if they use five stages.

The full agenda for Space Access 2013 agenda.

We have since built and successfully fired a larger motor.

And we do rocket propellant making classes at the FAR site for students
